What Bubble King Skimmer


I am getting a 85 gallon tank that will house almost all soft corals and a few fish. Since a softie tank thrives under a bit 'dirtier' conditions, I was wondering what Bubble King internal skimmer would be best. I really like the 160mini, but it I don't want it to be overkill for the tank. Would the double cone 130 be a better choice. Also, I want some use of use and dial in. Thanks.

I’d probably go with the new Double Cone 150 with the RDX pump or even the Double Cone 130 with RDX if you are only going to have a handful of fish. It’s really about the load and a Mini 160 would be inconsistent with a really light load. The DC 150 would probably work OK unless the load is really light where as the Double Cone 130 would thrive with a lighter load.
